administrations did but that stuff seemed to work better than was going on now. host: from "the baltimore sun" this morning -- back to our discussion regarding who you trust on foreign policy -- pittsburgh , pa., on our line for democrats -- caller: no question, i am a retired military person and these people who are supposed to be experts on these things and have never served and all but want to do is go to war. the president is doing his job. they forgot that when bush was president, embassies were attacked. we have a short memory. i think the people just don't like obama. they will use any excuse to attack this man. this is really something people who don't know anything are saying the man apologizes. when did he apologize? host: our line for independents - go ahead caller: i support mitt romney on this. i heard the other day of our military men that were over there to protect the ambassador were not allowed to have the weapons loaded. all these people calling in about foreign affairs -- if cspan could rewind the tape and played back when he was over there at the summit when he thought the
in 2012? susan is in baltimore. hi susan. caller: hello. no i'm not going to stick with president obama this time. i feel that he's creating such a divisive atmosphere in our country and a very -- i'm very concerned for that, being the person who we want in our leadership. i feel like he has not shown us any substantive plans in the four years that he's been in business as the president, and instead, it seems like he wants to be rehraeblgt dollars, he picks -- reelected, he picks hot button issues such as will and illegal aliens, and he just starts divisiveness and causes peoples' emotions, the people who fall in those categories, i'm one of those people, and i have children and they are in one of those categories, and he doesn't have a plan, he puts it temporarily together and touts that as plan, but it's not, so that he can get reelected. again, if he was doing a good reelection campaign and maybe used things like that but also had demonstrated over the last almost four years some good, strong substantive plans that brought the economy to our country and brought the people together, w
, that was thrilling. my father had been mayor of baltimore. one of the leaders of the kennedy campaign in maryland. the first night we got there, it was the dinner for him. we all saw the president, the family very differently. after he made his speech at the stadium, which was stark, no one ever did that, fabulous seats. my father want to go to a famous restaurant in los angeles. we did. my father said this is really an expensive restaurant, how did you choose the restaurant. compared to baltimore, it was very expensive. i remember him not complaining, but making the point when the door opened and here comes senator kennedy. he came right over, what did you think of the speech? ask me what i thought. all of a sudden the prices came way down. >> suddenly it was not worth it. take a one of the most memorable single images of this convention ran on the front of "the new york time" was you with the women members of the house. but was a like to stand up there? >> it was pretty exciting. that was only half of those we have in the house. it was pretty exciting because of the connection. it was so exciti
issues. ed is an independent in baltimore. caller: good morning and thank you for c-span. the first action of the violence was an organized protest stemming most likely from 9/11. we found a video made over a year ago to put the blame on it. it is a reactionary congress here in the u.s. that all of a sudden wants to do something about it or reactionary administration. these were planned protests, not grass roots outbreaks of violence. we have blamed it on a year-old video. eventually we will lose some rights because of its. host: the occupy wall street movement is one year old today. this is the question put forth by "usa today" -- arkansas, john, a republican. caller: good morning. this particular question raises another interesting question. who is this u.s. government that will control free speech? is it the same u.s. government that allows illegals to access our education, medication, housing, employment sectors? is it the same u.s. government that limits the futures of 1 million aborted babies each year although 50% of the people are against it? the same government that forces
baltimore sun" encapsulate the speeches yesterday. they pointed out that president barack obama made an impassioned defense of the expression of freedom worldwide. mitt romney urged other nations to emulate the free economy and suggested that the obama leadership in the middle east has been inadequate and reactive. this is a short piece to start us off from the president at united nations yesterday, talking about the middle east. [video clip] >> i believe that this message must be rejected by all those who respect our common humanity. i have made it clear that the united states had nothing to do with this video. it is an insult to muslims, and everyone. we are the home to muslims worship across our country. we not only respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. we understand why people take offense to this video because millions of our citizens are among them. host: more headlines following these speeches, "obama talks tough on mideast extremism." "uses addressed to regain the initiative on f
to fund that gap. host: baltimore on the democratic line, jay. caller: jerry, actually. thank you, c-span, and i really love your show. it's nice to be built to voice our opinion. my question is about qe-3. where is he getting $40 billion a month to purchase mortgage backed securities? if he has the power to do that, we cannotderstand why do this for something that is actually going to be tangible, like roads and bridges. everybody says that, but our transportation infrastructure is no longer what it takes to get stuff done quickly. the hours that dispense stuck in traffic, idling with gas at $4 a gallon will not help the situation. can you speak to where this $40 will come from?h host: referring to the federal reserve. guest: gao is at an early printed it from looking at the federal reserve pose a monetary policy activity. such as quantitative easing. we don't have a position on that because we are not able to look at that. host: is there any organization oversight of the federal reserve's monetary policy, any independent agency doing reviews? guest: not that i'm aware of. have thet
me. host and that social media includes our phone calls. bruce, baltimore, good morning, independent line, thank you for waiting. caller: how you doing, good morning. i watched the democratic convention and you also speak about how obama captured bin laden and all the praise of how senator obama did such a great job during the war and so forth. i think the credit should go to george bush. george bush is the one that set up all these ways of catching bin laden, setting up going to war in iraq. but all the democrats, all they are like perform colmes, they want to give obama all the credit for all the polices george bush set. host: thank you bruce. allen colmes. guest: i think to some extent you're right. i think the end of the iraq war, for example, was already in play when obama took office and in fact president obama kept many of the bush national security people around him like robert gates, the secretary of defense, at the beginning of his administration. so to some extent, you've actually got a point. but in terms of bin laden, you know, there's a clip of george w. bush at one poi
